I'm not here to claim my pain is worse than anyone else's, or that I know better. I hope your pain isn't worse than mine, I hope you're not struggling like I am, but I'm okay if you 'win' this one. I don't mind how mine pain compares to anyone else's. In fact, your pain is worse than mine.
I often talk about how much I can do, living with Trigeminal Neuralgia, but I don't often blog about the things I can't do. I realised that I probably should, because this is the kind of post I'd like to read myself - to know it's not only me and to know I'm not alone. I also wish I'd have known some of these things when I first got diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia, to know what was 'normal' for other people and to know what was special just for me.
